In anticipation of the summer sun (we hope), and also of World Gin Day on 14th June, we’ll be heading to Junipalooza gin festival. This promises to be the UK’s biggest ever festival dedicated to the spirit. British and international producers will be celebrating gin at Factory 7 in Shoreditch with more than 40 varieties to sample. Add to that two specialised cocktail bars and it should be the perfect place to broaden your appreciation of distillation. Tickets include five gin tokens so there’s no excuse not to explore the many flavours. And a drinks-by-the-dram shop specialising in sample-sized bottles means that you could continue your, ahem… research throughout the rest of the month.
